Involvement: The sisters of Pi Beta Phi have a program called Champions are Readers (CAR), where every Friday sisterss carpool to local schools and read to children, to help them begin to learn how to read themselves. The Pi Phi sisters also host SurPHIvor, a mini-game philanthropy event where all Greek Life chapters compete to figure out who is the SurPHIvor. These women also host a volleyball tournament called Arrow spike to raise money for the Pi Beta Phi Foundation, open for all chapters to participate. The sisters of Pi Phi also set up Lemonade for Literacy, where they set up a Lemonade stand and put the proceeds toward buying books for students who need them through the Pi Beta Phi Foundation, and Lollipops for Literacy, where sisters hand our lollipops with facts about literacy to help spread awareness of illiteracy within the USA. The Pi Phi women also have accomodated to the virtual time period with virtual philanthropy events, such as Bingo and Trivia Night.
Sisterhood: This Pi Beta Phi chapter is special because of its extremely strong sisterhood. Sisters of Pi Phi can always reach out to any other sister in the chapter, and will always be welcomed with open arms, and supported with Pi Phi Love. These sisters are all super friendly, funny, and accepting women, who cherish their sisterhood beyond anything else. Every event, serious or not, ends up being a blast with the hilarious and fun-loving personalities in this chapter, where everyone can be their true selves. Their bonds are for life, and this is where they all meet their future bridesmaids and forever friends.
Words from the Chapter President: “Pi Beta Phi is an empowering community of women that has provided me with personal growth and a sense of belonging. Our shared values- integrity, personal and intellectual growth, lifelong commitment, honor and respect, philanthropic service, and sincere friendship, cultivate a supportive environment that has created genuine bonds. My college experience would not be the same without my Pi Phi sisters and I am forever grateful for these women!”
- Kayla Kelly, Chapter President
HEAR IT FROM THE SISTERS:
"I absolutely love our big fundraising events like Pi Phi Gives You Wings and Pizookie, it’s so great to be able to raise money for our philanthropy in such a fun and unique way! During recruitment I had been so drawn to our philanthropy initiative, Read > Lead > Achieve, because both of my parents are teachers who fostered a love of learning and reading so early in my life, and it means the world to me that I have an even greater role in our philanthropy. Through our Champions Are Readers program, we can see first hand the impact we’re making in local students and see their love for reading growing more and more each day. By choosing Pi Phi I have been blessed with meeting some of my closest friends. Everyday I am so grateful for the love and constant support from my sisters, Pi Phi has changed my life in countless ways!”
-Alyssa Jacome, Director of Service and Philanthropy
